Default Re: Spring-loaded chain tensioner

Airbuzz your welcome. I mean you don't see chain tensioners on motorcycles for a reason. We are getting these bikes up fast enough that a tesioner failure can really get you hurt. I know some of the frames have to use one but if you can get away without one take the time to do it. I usually pull the clutch going downhill and sometimes get going over 40 easy. If you accidently let go of the clutch and it threw the tensioner into the spokes? Or just spinning that fast exploded the your tensioner wheel and let all that slack chain loose, it would really hurt.
Put something FUN between your legs..
